Berlin-Tel Aviv 2036 Olympics Would Be ‘a Mark of Reconciliation’
"Come to the promised. Podcast brought to you on t. Lv one the voice of the city. That was just proposed as a possible venue for the twenty thirty six olympics which will be the thirty sixth modern olympics now that the international olympic committee just decided that the thirty fifth olympiad in twenty thirty two will be in brisbane australia. The twenty thirty six games are now for bid. The proposal was floated. in last. week's berliner morgenpost in a column written by franck koale ski a lead organizer of the two thousand and eighteen european track and field championships in berlin and ricard ming. The president of the german olympic association. The two men began by observing. What maybe obvious that berlin could not host the twenty thirty six games because berlin hosted the nineteen thirty six weeks which were by then german. Chancellor adolf hitler and held in stadiums festooned with swastikas. You may remember. There was some unpleasantness back. Then so berlin is out or is it. Kurowski wrote quote so why not send a completely new strong signal of peace and reconciliation in twenty thirty six a signal that does not hide from history but takes up the responsibility that comes from it. It would be such a signal. If and israel apply together more precisely berlin and tel aviv with the sailing and surfing competitions on the eastern mediterranean but also with other sports such as beach volleyball in israel's lively metropolis as a clear signal of how responsibility arises from
Apple AirPods Sales Could Slip 15% in 2021

Apple AR Contact Lenses As The Apple Rumor Singularity
"All right all right all right. This is a more reasonable rumor. That i can get behind. According to our good buddy. Ming cheek quo apple plans to release a mixed reality headset as soon as next summer better even than that is that he figures that will price around the thousand dollar range then. Apples master playbook goes as follows according to quo- serious mainstream targeting. Ar glasses by twenty twenty five and then jeez. Even i haven't thought this ambitiously. He claims apple once contact lens. Type devices available by the twenty thirties. Quoting macrumors we predict that apple's m. r. a. our product roadmap includes three phases helmet type by two thousand twenty two glasses tight by twenty twenty five and contact lens type by thirty twenty forty wrote quo. We foresee that. The product will provide ar vr experiences while glasses and contact lens. Types of products are more likely to focus on a our applications co said. Several prototypes of apples mixed reality headset. Currently way in the two hundred to three hundred grams range. But he said that the final will be reduced to one hundred to two hundred grams. If apple can solve technical problems which would be significantly lighter than many existing vr devices due to a complex design quote. Expects the headset to be priced around a thousand dollars in the united states in line with the price of a high end iphone in line with previous rumor. Quo said the headset will be equipped with sony's micro led displays and several optical modules to provide a see-through a our experience adding that the headset can also offer a vr experience and quote quo. Said the headset. We'll be portable with independent computing power and storage but not truly mobile like an iphone quote when the technology improves. We believe that the new helmet product can also enhance its mobility. He said quote. Believe apple's headset has the potential to provide an quote immersive experience that is significantly better than existing. Vr products co. said the glasses will provide an optical see through a our experience and we'll be positioned as more of a mobile product than the mixed reality headset while the helmet provides a great immersive experiences. Glasses focused more on providing a mobile plus a our experience. He said quote is looking forward to the apple. Glasses integrating with the long rumored apple car which is likely several years away and quote. So yeah this is the equivalent of all of the wildest and most ambitious apple rumors rolled into one singularity. Like rumor post. Maybe he could have added. That apple will give everyone a pony as well. But heck if i live long enough to write in an apple car while scrolling through twitter in my field of vision thanks to my contact lens then you know hats off to you. Tim
Biden treads carefully around Trump's combative trade policy
"Negotiations over. A corona virus relief package have been central to president biden's first weeks in office but he's also confronting a long list of foreign policy challenges global vaccine distribution trade and the task of repairing alliances that were frayed by former president. Donald trump in his first major foreign policy speech as president last week biden laid out his vision. America is back. Diplomacy is back at the center of our foreign policy. As i said to my inaugural address we will repair our alliances engaged with the world once again not to meet yesterday's challenges but today's and tomorrow's we want to get some reaction now to how biden's foreign policy is shaping up in europe and for that we're joined on skype by rosa balfour director of the europe center at the carnegie endowment for international peace. Welcome rosa hello. And so the president outlined a few immediate changes in his announcement last week including a nuclear arms treaty with russia and the decision to keep. Us troops in germany that former president trump had said would be coming back to the us. So how was his address. And this statement that america is back received in europe. Everything that has happened since by was elected has been well received in europe. There is a nerve well. Ming delight that things have changed in the white house and all of the decisions that were actually taken infest. Few days of the biden administration also welcome in europe however the still awesome europeans are worried about and i think one of them is that while the biden administration really wants to invest on allies and on diplomacy which is music to is of europeans. At the same time there is a bit of a concern that the priorities of the new administration will be very much domestically focused and that that will have implications for trade for climate change prioritize of technology so does raise some potentially troubling issues in the relationship between the us and europe together. We'll let me ask about one of those then rosa because One of the early executive actions that president biden took was signing his So-called american executive order so you mentioned trade as a potential issue. Does europe look at that as a form of protectionism. Well they're all suspicions that bassey's the deep meaning this. This decision actually is and europe would probably be more ambitious than the us in seeking broader trade deal. So i would be cautiously optimistic. That europeans and americans can go through the differences about they all suspicions in europe about the. Us's ultimate goal in terms of trade policy could any concerns about protectionism. Also extend to access to a corona iris vaccine. Because so far the supply has been kind of limited Could there be some tension between the us and europe about who is able to get their hands on these limited supplies. Yes to there's been a bit of a spat with the uk over procurement of crow virus. Vaccines and these could well continue. Having said this there is a general commitments that this coronavirus pandemic really needs to be addressed through global cooperation and european leaders. Have been underlining this and so i think ultimately this line will prevail pasta is modeled because of the pandemic and the desperation attached to wanting to this pandemic and get back onto a normal footing in our lives in the economy. Globally on that idea of getting back to sort of a normal footing. We heard germany's foreign minister. Say that he hopes for a reset of us european relations under the biden administration. I'm wondering rose how easily you think the president can do that. I mean is there any lingering concern in europe to the. Us is just not as reliable as it once was based on the last four years. Yes i'm afraid. The legacy of four years of trump is a pretty dramatic. He's caused a long shadow and they're all doubts. We've seen this before. George w bush was not loved at all in europe and then america bounced back with the bomber with biden. It might take a little longer. But i think all the ingredients all that at the end of the day even if europe and the us do not align on everything they don't align necessarily on their view off the chinese threat or the russian threats but are far closer to each other van out to anyone else. And i'm glad you brought up russia because that was one of the things that the president brought up in his speech last week's asked what he calls the quote determination of russia to damage and disrupt our democracy. He also sort of reaffirmed the united states commitment to nato calling it one of the country's closest friends how is biden's russia policy taking shape it. And what does that mean for. Nato in your view so let's just tremendous because europe has just had a bit of a diplomatic blunder of with russia on the high representative for foreign affairs visits moscow and the outcome visit was very negative but the high representative has also said. There's only so much i can do. If the member states continued to be divided and this is the big issue in europe with respect to russia in particular but also with respect to china's that the member states have quite simply not on the same page. I think biden if he works with his allies in europe and is in listening mode in doing so can help bring europeans closer together. And this affects you. Us corporation russia. But also a nato. On russia we know that nato has still considers russia as the greatest threat. And of course the us decision to wait before. Moving troops of germany is only welcome in germany. Trump's earlier decision to move. The mouse was viewed very negatively in germany. Rosa balfour directs the europe center at the carnegie endowment for international peace rosa. Thanks so much for your time. Thank
Liz Cheney says she won't resign after Wyoming censure
"Oyo Ming Republican Congresswoman Liz Cheney says she does not intend to resign after being censured by Wyoming Republicans over her vote to impeach Donald Trump appearing on Fox. Cheney suggests that that if she were in the Senate She would vote to convict Trump over his role in the capital insurrection. On January 6th. Cheney blasted her State Party for the century, noting that state Republicans embraced conspiracy theories such as the inaccurate blame the black lives matter and Antifa were behind the mob attack on the capital. And who brought trumps argument that the election was rigged. People have been lied to, uh, the extent to which the President President Trump for months leading up to January, 6th spread the notion that the election has been stolen or that the election was rigged. Um, but it was a lie, and people need to understand that we need to make sure that we as Republicans Are the party of truth and that we're being honest about what really did happen in 2020. So so we actually have a chance to win in 2022 when the White House back in 2024, Only eight of the 74 member Wyoming Republican Party Central Committee opposed Cheney censure Cheney is the third highest ranking member of the House Republican

Mapping and a are affects dual eight k displays and i tracking to save battery life. The information sources says apple would use aided rendering. that's when you only render in full resolution. What your eyes are looking at everything. In the periphery can be a little lower sources. Say apple has not finalized input control but the options. They're considering are a combination of hand tracking i tracking a dial on the headset or something. They call a thimble like accessory. Oh boy well the thing that jumped out to me. I because we have talked about this before. This rumor has been swirling. I mean really for years but it seems to be more of a reality than ever. Is that three thousand dollar price points now again. It's a rumor and yes. Apple tends to make things that are similar to other products that are more expensive and then says but it's apple so you know we can do that sort of thing. Three thousand dollars. Oh my goodness Compare that to oculus to for three hundred dollars. That's a crazy price point. I don't know how the company could get away with such a thing.

Apple Mac bringing back the SD card
"Starting to look like this. Next mac book pro is gonna be the mac book. Where sorry is gonna be the mac book. We were wrong because we already talked about the fact that there maybe probably moving away from the touch bar. We already know the fact. They went to an older style keyboard design. Yesterday we talked about or maybe two days ago that they were going to go back to having a mag safe connector. Today's report we're gonna put an st card in there s the card reader so this was a long experiment for them. You know what it was. Well let me tell you what happened. They let everybody go and buy the minimalist design figured out how much they missed having features so that now in this one comes out and gives them all the features back they rush out like crazy real quick to pick those up. So it's our fault right. Yeah i blame you really do. Yeah i card reader. How nice would it be. Just having st carburetor. Maybe they do some even crazier and put an hdmi port and now just fantastic. Let's not get good type stuff. We're asking for here analyst. Ming cheek will outline his expectations for the new fourteen inch and sixteen inch macbook pro models. Coming later this year with the mag makes a charging connector the removal of the touch bar a new flat edge design and a return of more ports built into notebook for expanded connectivity. I mean i'm so sick. Docs and i'm so sick of dogle today on the macbook air. I watched mo- have to pull out the docking station and everything else. He was tangled up in wire. He had wires because he needed to as the and he wanted to connect an ethernet. And i don't think we're going to eastern at jack on here but still so the next s the card Part of it comes from bloomberg's mark gurman the upcoming macbook pros and example of apple's renewed focus on mac loyalists. The company is planning to bring back in sd card slot for the next macbook pro so users can insert memory cards from digital cameras. Yeah that's what you do with an s. d. card slot. The feature was removed all the way back in two thousand sixteen hundred twenty one. Now this is kind of unlike apple but who knows you never know what they're gonna do remember when they went for the trash can mac pro for example and then they completely backed off the next time around They there were some issues. People wished that they had more ability to upgrade that device switch out. Gp's and things that they wanted a traditional design and so apple went right back to the tower the regular style tower. So i think it's the right move. I don't think. I think if you had you had a plan and things didn't really pan out then that's fine. You know you admit it and you move on this trash can was kinda cute but it just wasn't ready for prime time. We have the rumor that the next model could be a little cube but that they're probably going to keep the full-sized towers as an option. But this is about the macbook pros and the two thousand fifteen macbook pro. Not only did it have an st card reader. It also had in hdmi port. And you're be ports. Which i know. This is the kind of stuff that you're most. Pleasant drinks are filled with. Well the sweet sweet for all kinds of sports. The we'll see what happens but this is a nice little touch here. I know

Contradicting Headlines About Apple Airpods
"A tale of two headlines. One has teeth international analyst ming quo indicating apple's major product lines joy healthy demand in the fourth. Quarter but airpods shipments are muted. That is contradicted by another headline that has wedbush analyst. Daniel ives indicating. Strong holiday. Demand for airpods could continue into twenty twenty one. The funny part one of those headlines is from apple insider while the other is from apple insider in fairness apple insider not saying either rather saying that analysts are saying both starting with young. Mc that post has closing stronger-than-expected demand for iphone twelve pro and iphone twelve pro max. Similarly demand is beating expectations for ipad. Air apple watch series. Six apple watch as e and the m one macbooks but airpods while i was going to jokingly say airpods are sucking wind. That doesn't quite sound right. Indications are muddled quoting that part despite the strong performance for apple's core product lines airpods is exhibiting softness quote predictions to remain flat or declined by between five percent to ten percent year on year and the first half of twenty twenty one the analyst blames upstream supply constraints and an overeager market that anticipated stronger. Sales numbers after apple announced plans to stop giving away earpods muddled right. There's not enough supply and people don't want them as much as we thought. Anyway that's young. mc's take her ives. That post has the head of apple's pep squad financial division seeing bigger and better for the super stoppers. The way he sees it apple could sell as many as eighteen million pairs of airpods in december. A total of ninety million pairs and twenty twenty and as many as one hundred fifteen million pairs in twenty twenty. One quoting his note. This product category continues to speak to the unparalleled flywheel. That cook and cupertino hab with nine hundred fifty million iphones worldwide under its belt and one point four billion active devices to tap into worldwide and thus further monetize through products and services as we continue to see with apple watch as well that was also one sentence is disagree on demand. There's one point on which they do agree. They both see new airpods coming in the second quarter of twenty twenty one quote arrived late in the june quarter so june. Apparently i on the other hand expects the new airpods in april. Or may mr. Ives has a buy rating on apple shares. His price target on the shares is one hundred fifty bucks designed by apple in california made in vietnam may soon be a thing for more apple stuff. Tech crunch says foxconn may be moving some macbook an ipad production from china to vietnam at apple's request the peace sites a reuters report indicating that apple as that some assembly for the two devices be moved to vietnam specifically certainly getting more production out of china has been a pressing issue for apple. Thanks in part of the trump administration's war with china additionally the eruption of covid nineteen showed the folly of having too many eggs in one manufacturing basket according to reuters according to crunch apple ass.

Apple iPhone 12 Pro Demand Expected to Rise
"Analyst. Ming chi kuo predicts better than expected demand for the iphone. Twelve pro models offsetting some weaker than expected demand for the twelve and twelve. Many quo also sees evidence.

History of the COVID vaccine
"The promise of a covid. Nineteen vaccine is immense. But don't underestimate the challenges ahead. Nine long years elapsed between the isolation of the measles virus in nineteen fifty. Four and the licensing of vaccine. The world waited for twenty years between early trials of polio vaccine and the first american license in nineteen fifty five marvel then at how the world's scientists are on course to produce a working vaccine against sars kobe to the virus that causes covid nineteen within a single year. And not just any vaccine. The data from a final stage trial unveil this week by pfizer and biontech to pharma companies suggests that vaccination cuts your chances of suffering symptoms by more than ninety percent. That is almost as good as for measles and better than the flu job with an efficacy of just forty to sixty percent. Suddenly a dark winter there is hope not surprisingly phases news on november ninth rouse the markets bulls investors dumped shares in florax peleton tech firms which have all benefited from the corona virus and instead switched into firms like disney carnival and international consolidated airline's group. Which will do well. When the sun shines again the oecd. A club of mainly rich countries reckons that global growth in twenty twenty. One with an early vaccine will be seven percent. Two percentage points higher than without there is indeed much to celebrate. Pfizer's results suggest that other vaccines were worked to over. Three hundred and twenty are in development. Several in advance trials most liked pfizer's focus on the spike protein with which sars covy to gains entry to cells. If one vaccine has used this strategy to stimulate immunity of us probably cantu pfizer's vaccine is also the first using a promising new technology many vaccines prime the immune system by introducing in fragments of viral protein. This one gets the body to make the viral protein itself by inserting genetic instructions contained. In a form of our anna. Because you can edit aren. Hey the vaccine can be tweaked should the spike protein mutate as it may have. Recently in ming this platform can be used with other viruses and diseases possibly including cancer on original focus so celebrate how far biology has come and how fruit fleet can manipulate biochemical machinery. For the good of humanity. There will be time later to worry about how that power might also be abused and celebrate the potency of sciences at global endeavor drawing on contributions from across the world. A small german firm founded by first generation. Turkish emigrants has successfully. Worked with an american multinational company headed by greek chief executive yet despite the good news too big question out about the characteristics of the vaccine and how fast it can be distributed. These are early results. Based on ninety four symptomatic cases of covid nineteen from among the forty four thousand volunteers. Further answers must wait until the trial has gathered more data. It is therefore not clear whether the vaccine stop severe cases or mild ones or whether it protects the elderly whose immune systems are weaker nor is it known whether inoculated people can still cause potentially fatal infections in those yet to receive jobs and it is too soon to be sure how long the beneficial effects will last clarity will take time in the next few weeks. The trial should be declared safe. Though further monitoring of the vaccine will be needed. The company's predict that immunity will last for at least a year. The ninety percent plus efficacy so high that this vaccine may offer at least some protection to all age groups while the world waits data it will have to grapple with distribution will be in short supply for most of next year. Although our any jobs may prove easier to make it scale than those based on proteins pfizer's requires two doses. The company has said that it will be able to produce up to fifty million doses in two thousand and twenty one point three billion next year. That sounds a lot but america alone has over. Twenty million first responders medical staff care homeworkers an active duty troops perhaps a fifth of the world's seven point eight billion people including two thirds of those over seventy risk. Severe covid nineteen. Nobody has ever tried to vaccinate an entire planet at once as the effort mounts. Ge's medical glass and stuff could run. Short worse visors shots need to be stored at temperatures of minus seventy degrees celsius or even colder far beyond the scope of your local chemist companies building an ultra cold chain but the logistics will still be hard. The vaccine comes in batches of at least nine. Hundred and seventy five doses. So you need to assemble that. Many people their first shot and the same crowd again. Twenty one days later for a booster. Nobody knows how many doses will be wasted so long as there is too little vaccine to go round. Priorities must be set by governments. A lot depends on them getting it right within countries and between them modeling suggests that if fifty rich countries were to administer two billion doses of vaccine that is eighty percent effective they would prevent a third of deaths globally if the vaccine was supplied according to rich and poor countries population. That share would almost double. The details will depend on the vaccine. Poor countries may find ultra cold chains. Too costly the domestic answer to these problems is national committees to allocate vaccine optimally. The global answer is kovacs. An initiative to encourage countries equal access to supplies ultimately though the solution will be continued work on more maxine some might survive in commercial. Refrigerators of those will work. Better on the elderly still others might confer longer protection require a single shot or stop infections as well as symptoms all those that work will help increase apply. Only when there is enough to go around. We'll anti vaccines become an obstacle early. Reports suggest the jap causes fevers and eggs which may also put some people off. The good news is that an efficacy of ninety percent makes vaccination more attractive. The next few months will be hard global recorded. Death rates of surged past their april peak. Governments will struggle with the logistics of axon nation. America is rich and it has world class medicine but it risks falling short because the virus is raging there and because the transition between administrations could lead to needless chaos and delays squandering lives. When a vaccine is at hand would be especially cruel. Science has done. Its bit to see off. the virus. Now comes the test society
The Food Fix
"I must admit to being exhausted. The last four years has taken a massive psychological and emotional toll that i'm only now just beginning to appreciate truthfully the struggle to keep hope that this day would arrive of alluded me the good news that we now have the opportunity to reignite democracy civility truth and move towards healing both our country and the earth. We've gone so far backwards that we need to move forward with deliberate tangible and bold steps one of the voices calling for such a revolution in thinking and action is dr mark. Hyman mark is a systems thinker and for dr. Hyman health is about connecting the soil with the farmer with the groza without diet and only when we connect all those dots. Can we begin to achieve planetary regeneration. As we'll hear in today's podcast what is truly staggering is the cost of today's broken food system. In which sixty percent of our calories in the us come in the form of ultra processed food. Dr mark hyman is head of strategy and innovation of the cleveland clinic center for functional medicine. He's the founder and director of the ultra wellness center and the board president of clinical affairs for the institute of functional medicine. Mark hosts one of the leading health. Podcast the doctors pharmacies spelled f. a. a. c. y. Pham esi marcus. The thirteen time. New york best seller author. His most recent book is called food. Fix how to save our health our economy our communities and our planet one bite. At a time i sought by ascii mark. How he got into medicine in the first place. Ming doctor was a total afterthought for me buddhist student in college. I studied buddhism. Asian studies chinese. I studied ecology. The environment systems thinking ancient systems of healing. Very eclectic and i decided after i graduated. But what am. I going do with a degree in buddhism so i took a long hike by myself in the shenandoah valley through my backpack brought a copy of moby dick. Because it was a very thick books. I could carry and read house before kindle and I just walked and thought and just kind of thought about what i wanted to do in the buddhist framework is really about healing. It's a it's a healing system. It's not really a religion it's really a system of healing of the mind and it's about the relief of suffering it's about compassion and love and service and and those were things that really called to me as a young man and i thought well. What could i do. That kind of fits all that. I could be a monk. That didn't sound like a lot of fun. But i decided i could be a doctor and it was a total afterthought i just i didn't have any science courses. I had to go back. And take some pre med courses and ended up loving. And i decided i would just keep doing as long as i liked it. And if i didn't like it anymore. I would stop and so far so good thirty years later. I mean that's great advice for anyone thinking about people. Ask me career advice. I say that like if you enjoy it if it fills you keep doing it and if it doesn't maybe think about stopping it exactly exactly chain. I've changed so many things i've been you know a small town country doctrine idaho and a native american reservation. Emergency room doctor started clinics in china ex patriots. I was the medical director. Kanye ranch i developed my own. Practice started writing books and teaching About functional medicine became the faculty of functional medicine institute and direct and the chairman of it started big center for functional medicine at cleveland clinic. And now i'm sort of moving into a different phase of thinking about how do we deal with the intersecting issues of food and health and agriculture environment which all may seem separate but are actually all one problem and if we want to solve one we have to solve them all to before we end that. What is functional medicine. What does that mean. That joke is the opposite of dysfunctional medicine. Which is what we have now. As essentially a system of thinking it's not a methodology or treatment or attests supplement is is essentially a way of thinking about disease based on systems. It's it's base c ecosystem medicine. You understand that that the environment is an ecosystem and that everything has to be imbalanced in nature. For to thrive and in madison we really created a reductionist model that allows us to focus on diseases and symptoms in drugs to target those symptoms and not really understand what is health. We never took the course in medical school. Creating a healthy human wanna one. You know we we basically learn how to diagnose and diseases functional. Medicine is the science creating health. And when you do that does goes away. The side effect if you create a healthy ecosystem for example on a farm or a natural ecosystem it becomes. Resilient disease doesn't occur.

Yeah exactly so. Why did you guys have so much fun this weekend? I'M A car. O and Ming Ming is like one of the main components of having a lot of fun. Thank you who knew that the Ben twisted would bring so many people together. The Diagram of that show is amazing to me. 'cause you think about it and and it's and it has it's grown up a lot so this is your three like year one John. Let's be honest. It was the Weedon Gigolo butthole year. That's all you smell you smell weed and Jello. But that's all it was your to last year. They like they grew up a little bit and like things. got a little more organized than operationalized. This year was solid like they had everything they had everything on lock and things ran. Well Yeah if you went outside into the smoking ban getting high whether you're smoking or not have to go outside like in all honesty I saw so many people smoking like on the inside and I was just like a dude. God is we've maxed out. You'RE GONNA find a bigger venue and you could look bigger. That's GonNa be all right with all that I feel like Yeah the Wyndham Garden Hotel in sterling heights is kind of like the the podcast it gets a treat like they let you do whatever you want with like. All of the staff was super polite and stuff like I talked to a couple of them and they were just like you guys having fun and we're like yeah. Yeah or was it more like. Hey man you guys having fun because you WanNa have more fun would be a lot cooler. Yeah we saw. We saw some expert moves hours going by like the the hotel rooms and on every above every other room. There's a smoke detector and on some of them some kids at wrap plastic bags. I wouldn't call them like a pro move. This daft in a care. They didn't take it down there like all right whatever. Yeah everybody all weekend. It was so nice I had a con should be sponsored by breeze kind and Mister Clean smokier Peter Candles all though so that way like Raunchy no so that that's comic cons in general. That's not that like Bob. I have said for four years like we try. We've tried to talk every time we go to in a leading sponsor this we want the alien has met for decontamination chamber. Before for you walk into the con- like you walk in and you have to stop and it's safe and it's all for breeze. Maybe some axe body spray. That's something you don't WanNa give the impression with a bunch. Juggle those walking around. I like. That's not their cup of tea but it'd be like all. The tattoos are axes. I feel like it would be hatchet man little little relax. I'm just saying if axe body spray would change their logo to look more like a hatchet. There's there's too many grows From my home state of Jersey rely on x being what it is for them to ever change. Yeah had you gone before remmy note that was that was my second con ever. What was the first one? The first one was the big COMECON over motor city comic con and that was a couple years ago and I had an amazing time. I had a friend who Should great cost play. She was Poison Ivy and really rocked it out. Yeah she's very nice. Scott Freddie Krueger Tattoos and like cool chick she's world yeah shadow suggesting because She's an awesome check and she was like you've never been to a con before. I gotta take you so I went to that one on but this is my second one and knowing these guys and knowing that you were going to be there and stuff I was like I gotta go I gotta get into this world. Somebody like draw me in. I mean you've seen the posts. Have you heard of this story. I knew kind of what I was walking into since I had been to one before but this was de la. Everybody had a smile on their face. Everybody was so nice to me. I just I. I ran into France that hadn't seen in a while. Oh it's amazing like this is really cool world. I'm I need to get more involved in this. Yeah you you got a fan and there's a bunch of different types of con- though it's like you can just go to like cons for almost anything. Somebody asked me if I was going to go to motorcity nightmares. Mike Horrors not really my cup of tea but like if it's if that's all it is so that was actually love it. I went there last year Just to like. Hang out and check stuff stephanie. He wanted to go. Yeah and so like. Because she's a she's a huge hellraiser fan and they had the entire cast and Clive Barker there And so like she has is one of those little cube things and had had aside had aside signed by each of the cast members and then like I reached out to the organizers and we got like fifteen minutes with Clive Barker interview and so that was phenomenal. And like they're they're pushing really hard for us to like come to a booth and all that stuff this year and that's when we haven't done in the past asked and I really really really liked the vibe and that kind of it's not it's not there's no there's no just when it comes to cons in general that's what I like like that like okay so that wasn't just a twisted con now. There was some horror. There was some wrestling. There was some pop culture. There was some this. There were some that motor city the by and large. It's mostly pop culture but yeah there's comic books there's this there's that you know so that no matter what can you go to. Even though it has a central theme they still try to round round things out to give the rand. Does that show that show up something to look. That would be me just because I'm not a big horror. Fan doesn't mean I don't appreciate all the cool artwork. The people of the talent that you know is involved in putting all that artists that come in and sell their their stuff has nothing to do with Horror or pop or anything like that. They just are artists. Everybody Dave and Tia the speed painting stuff that he did there went so well. Because we've got three of those things in here I thought those look familiar. That's BOB's Dave. Since high school. And I've known Dave since I've known Bob mentioned that I was like what was that like he was like interesting interesting. host Bob Walton. I feel like that would be a hell it growing up with Bob. I feel like there would be a hell of a podcast. Just can't imagine bobby highschool school you should. You should have seen Bob when he was just. Dj Bob at the Post Bar. which was essentially Bob in highschool? But no zoe santee like you know the speed painting south and like the panel handle discussions and there was a a wrestling trivia thing that happened and you know there was stuff about comics and collectibles and that kind of stuff like I said I mean it's I just just pick a con Khan and go but the trick is like don't judge every con based on the one that you go to because they all all are different make sense. And that's that's the thing like Great Lakes comic con is in a couple of weeks And that is a very very comic book heavy. Show so if you're into of that sweet that's the show you go to You know if you're into your in a horror motorcity nightmares. If you're into a little pop culture a little mix there's a show in a couple of weeks down in Toledo fantastic on That puts on a phenomenal show. And you know so. It's an hour south of here. Great Show over here And some of them. I'm have phenomenal after parties. Some of them have no official after parties. And you just got to find the people that are doing the things and I'm just GonNa hang with you and hoping and Holy Win The lottery so I could go on all these kinds because they get expensive. If you start buying stuff like what about this I want to buy that. I want to support this artists. Sport that artist. That's the beauty of it. I stopped talk to a couple of people at booths and stuff. And he's like. Oh Man I kind of the year. Everybody's mood can't wait to get out of my house. It's been cold and been shut up for you know I've been looking forward to this for months. Just great people vibe. Well you've seen like the green room and everything in our studios. We spend a lot of time and money at Johns. I mean Ed's It's that's and that's the best part is there's always there's always artists that are doing cool and unique different stuff and some of it's for you and some of it's not and that's okay you know. Buttons Pins collectibles. I'm glad like I hate the. There are some kinds that have gotten to basically. They've turned into like fun. Go pop cons and it's like yeah we're thirty seven vendors that are all selling go pops out like everyone was telling funke POPs at this one there were there were there. Were like four of them. That were there were pretty funk about. None of them had the ming-chin in pop. What the fuck seriously get your shit together one thing? I'd like to others Kahn. which not a lot of cons? Have they have a bar. Drink on. You can bring interest on the con- floor wells cheap. Considering there's a reason the beer cheap it was sour take a soda was four bucks. Yeah those okay. That's the thing is they had like. They had a tap beer and it didn't say what kind of beer it was but it just kind of three dollars and I went to go buy one and I was like you know what. There's probably a reason why it's three dollars. It's either or like some like it's probably fucking Hams or something or shots attics hands just that. It's not expensive so it's like either or something like that or it was probably going and they needed to get rid of that keg. He'd been chilled and warmed and children warmed about five times. You could tell you haven't seen that around but for for ten dollars. I got a pint of this nasty beer and then a very heavy poor of crown royal with a couple of kids in it so I was walking around double fist and and got a lot of props from that or it was like. Oh this guy's got the right idea looking double fest. Every ten bucks can't get really wasn't that bad. It was very were paying attention. 'cause we had Jameson and crown and everything behind the booth. ooh Man absolution I mean I want my money back like come on the day I was there to see eh. PBR Sport I yeah I should have known that there was plenty of boos to be had that with you but you gotta support the local vendors and the people who put yeah. I like ran into trey. Nice we'll get a glass of ice after I drink drink with my drinks rex but it really wasn't that bad because like I've been to some cons. where like Joe McConnell for example? I got like a bud light. It was like seven dollars for a bottle. And it's like a twelve ounce bud light seven dollars like fuck you will. Yes volt bar. Yeah I mean that's that's that's the thing I ask for soccer.

"Just like what am I watching 'em there's a San Francisco ballet's doing extreme but it's all Mendelssohn they're just You know in. In addition to the incidental music it's It's other pieces of medicine of Australia's knocks at And some other random pieces that have been orchestrated by Yeah I mean it's funny with belly I mean there's a famous ballet of Egypt Nagin and by John Canco the choreographer and Tastic Eugene Oregon. That's nominal uses. None of the same music. One of the music and on top of that is still uses all tchaykovsky music. And you're like what happened. Bizarre eases his seasons cases when each of the seasons has been orchestrated fantastic. It's gorgeous but it's just bizarre. You know so. It's very very different very different music. But yeah task over. Yeah well Mushrooming Luke. Thank you so much for being with us. We've got two more questions if you if you have the time here. Yeah we we've discussed the Very interesting music just now But is there a piece of music that you particularly enjoy that you feel like hasn't been performed enough or ballet that you wish you could perform that maybe has been performed enough for you feel like should be performed more often You know it's funny because you have to ask it's hard because I have ballet's that I absolutely love have crap music when there's pieces that are just like other leave phenomenal music. That should be before more than the dancing tends to be the choreography as doesn't match as powerfully I feel like that oftentimes. My bucket list is Was when I was a young connector was always the PROKOFIEV's works But you know when you have Juliet Cinderella has some of the most fantastic music prodigal son in all three of them end in c major and the affect of the very end are completely different prodigal son of this wrenching son that comes back and still in C Major Cinderella this effortless in no pure release. And then you have Romeo and Juliet tragic see major than ever happened but a there's happy ending to Romeo Juliet. The original ending that has never performed that should be performed. Because that's prokofiev's original intention Which is ludicrous. Because it uses music from films winning got when Stalin basic answered it you basically said okay fine. We'll you know we'll change it. And then he repurpose the music for the Fifth Symphony. You know I think that I think that that ending is really interesting. I think people should try to use them more. But I don't know I think ballet companies oftentimes shy away from the more things you know like The like Brahms or something There's a fantastic. Work of the Brahms Minor Channel But it's been orchestrated and it's fantastic. And I think that if companies experimented more with some of the repertoire that or catcher musicians really dig into. I think it's really would be interesting. You know but that I mean I'm a sucker for for the Nineteenth Century and early twentieth century Russians in so I mean. It's it's hard to get away from you know Emmy when the clock hits midnight. I remember the first time I listened to it. I literally had no clue as high school but I literally had no clue what was making those sounds on stage. That's why you know it's the same thing when you go through to symphony at the very end where the army army comes in you can actually hear the machinery it just like. Oh my God that orchestration utterly amazing in like that's and Yeah I get A. I won't shy away from trying to do that over and over again to the you mentioned Stravinsky earlier but you didn't mention which one do the Stravinsky's get get performed with staging because I've never heard of them being performed yeah. Stravinsky unbalancing had phenomenal relationship in. It's hilarious because balance-sheet would go to Stravinsky and say hey. We need a couple more seconds here. Can you add some more music? Servants gave us the stadium. Like give me precisely exactly how many seconds over right that amount in you have to be accurate with me you know. They have a lot of a lot of this works Drum Robbins too. I mean like New York City Ballet's Stravinsky and balanchine in our the violin. Concerto is is warmer famous Balanchine's infancy You know there's there's a whole tonnage trubisky works Let alone obviously the odd prokofiev's to driven Firebird him you know like a lot of the ballet is a lot of So performed most a lot by ballet companies. Registering scholars just had a new production. I know Nash Recently fantastic when you have the entire orchestra sitting at you know it's it's Yeah it's great new and then our last question are billboard question so if you could erect a billboard that all young conductors would have to see on their way to work every morning. What would you you know? I think it's cheesy as the news. I think he's just like open. Be Open to things. He's open to people into situations. I think when connectors come to me and ask about how to advance your career. It's almost like the millennial thing right. Now it's not that you get stuck in a job in your at the job for twenty years it's more about your skill set right and people like they have eight or year like statistic nowadays. It's like eight to thirteen career changes or not coaching job. Changes in the course of life type. I think for connectors you know. It's about developing your skill. Set is being able to talk to patrons being able to hug talk to audience members being able to rehearse. Well you know marrying also didn't the swell and she practiced it. She would sit in a room in practice being efficient. Clear the point and so. That's that's something that needs to be worked on. I mean orchestras. You can tell nowadays. They seem like every single. Workers are Orchestras we'll have reviews of conductors. Have sit there and that review will follow around for the rest of your career. You know being a being open to people you know like we're talking about making personal connections. No and I think that people can take extreme where it's about networking for networking sake. But if you're genuine trying to connect people really learning from them or you know listening to them. I think that you know things. Open up a lot. More people understand that networking is a part of it. But they really just like it when you were just normal person and you want to connect to them as people you know about and I think just being open to new experiences you know not being worried about your first experience with ballet but using as experience to try to you know Just dive right in. You know. I remember a friend of mine was Talking about a colleague of his which residency for surgery and the the surgeon was rating him beyond belief. Just like how can you do? This and my friend was talking to his friend and he was just like I can't believe you not just more depressed. Him He my kids really beating up guys like you know what am learning every single second and I know that every day. I'm going to be progressing and I'm not him you know I don't have his experience and so everything that I can take from. Just drop away all the tags on him. You know it's GonNa be something learn from and I think that You know the idea is like one too good to do this type of you know work or you know putting in your dues. I think just being opened in getting your skill set to the point where you're is as valuable and useful to orchestras as possible. You know some POPs conductors. I mean I mean so some. Orchestras need have people that are efficient on the podium. You know you don't have time to talk about your approach to you know You know flame overture when his Foreign Education Concert? They wanted to be put together and they wanted to be respectable and clean. And if you have more time to expound on it great and some orchestras. They don't they want people to rehearse the hell out of them. You know y'all Vaden in New York. I mean he's a builder heaver. Horses no matter. If you're you know the biggest superstars in the world he's still GonNa sit there and like actually coach. Rehearse put together things and you know some orchestras. That doesn't work somewhere. it's absolutely amazing for and he became a director. New York because that's what they're looking for out and You know his reputation. Yeah I love that article. That article was talking about how this one player wanted. His former orchestrated was mentioning. How how they were very he was very gruff with them. And just didn't have good and you said flat out you know he didn't try to PC While they didn't practice I call them out on it. They can live with it. You know it was like well I mean like obviously. That's not for everybody. That's not for every orchestra but you know for certain orchestras. They're looking for builders Orchestras they're looking for somebody to take for musicianship. As you're like you know the phrasing a certain style of approaching music You know I think that it's just being open to as many experiences as he can. And letting yourself continually grow at every moment that idea that we can't understand bronze until like we're forty or fifty s not necessarily that specific age. The idea that we're always we're always learning more and Even when I do run Juliette if I'm like eighty I still wanna feel like if you know they're pulling things from it there's understanding blasting. I'll say I think it's just contents but my professor page in like one of the most mentor for me. He was asking if a rep rep I wanted to do brought in Strauss's four last songs and the four last songs are all about resignation from reminiscence from looking back over your life and obviously I'm the site little twenty two year olds Grad student than sitting there. And he's like. How could you possibly know what this music you know what? He was feeling when he wrote this music. And you know like me. I just love the music because it's gorgeous orchestration. The words are poignant it's very meaningful as deep and whatnot. But you know he wasn't. Meaning that to be flippant towards like. You can't understand this but it's very. It's it's being the idea that we're always growing that when I'm hopefully you know The way I approach Strauss Now is going to be different. Like you know Glenn. Gould is recording two completely different. You know that You know you get different things from some awesome. Well thanks so much for joining us today. Rate is definitely a new new territory for us and we really appreciate your time this morning. Yeah thank you you for joining us for this episode of podium time.

"Steps right or you to know the dancers and like you do singers orchestra players. You know I mean like you do that with orchestra you say. Oh you know what that guy is. You know alone doesn't have as much to make sure that they're gathering we help him out a little bit or you know how this happened. This performance were headed principal Horn player. Come in who hadn't played any of the rehearsals or concerts. And you know. Obviously you know exactly. How did that happen? You know like I don't know how that situation you find yourself by moments like yeah your function is GonNa under. The point is to make sure that they really are on top of what was to be entrances. And you know there's this thing with the ballet performance but you know so it was a little different but the principal clarinetist came in and Luckily Carrie Bell from the symphony used to be part of the ballet. But also it's nominal musician and he just didn't know anything like Bali is like opera. There could be a lot of Firmani If you're in rehearsals just navigating where you're doing. Cut off in the Levion or in a show bars with just a single beat. You know just a single down me actually conductor them all these little things like that. He just didn't break a sweat mazing but you know I think it was more the fact that a new trusted in the function of the conductor me on the podium at that point actually treating slightly as you had too much more aware of that or you know you feel like you know. Second Violence always Russia. That's one place you have to figure out how to manage that with different orchestras you know. Youth Orchestra. Rehearsals I mean a performance differently than professional orchestra. You know It's just I think all about the sort of awareness of what the possibilities are what the issues might what issues might arise and how to either you know handle them or try to To adjust and how does the? What's the rehearsal schedule for Bali like? Is it similar to opera You know you've got about maybe a month or to get on the stage at the very end. How does that different? Because I I how that is because the dancers are learning it for maybe two to three weeks or months or two months even on beforehand and in Studio Rehearsals. They are of course. Rehearsals like the quarter Valet ensembles and the principal dancers are working separately and the conductor comes in oftentimes at the beginning to make sure that the tempe or not ludicrous and then towards the end. Where you know. The Orchestra obviously only shows up for the last few rehearsals but is exactly the same setup as opera. You'll have piano tech rehearsals the first time on stage with piano you'll have the first time with Orchestra Orchestra. Tech's you'll have the ORCHESTRA DRESS. Rehearsals actual flower dress. Rehearsals with costumes sets lights and everything. And it's almost exactly the same structure the only differences that sometimes while this happens in Opportu but not as much. But sometimes they'll cut out a lot of rehearsals of its repertoire. Did they don't order this very familiar to them. You know like some orchestras like New York City. Ballet I think doesn't even have hersal with orchestra and dancers before let's go directly into performances because snap crackle for them you know whatever forty performances year but Some San Francisco Ballet is one of the most a normalized in terms of rehearsal schedules for a three hour ballet. They'll have nine hours of of hersal with the orchestra. Usually three three hours or eight or nine hours. And then they'll have their to orchestra tax to dress rehearsals. Oftentimes maybe just one dress rehearsal. And then the performances. So it's it's it's very very similar to Opera in the structure especially the way they prepare and assemble things at the end. You know I just I'm reading through John Missouri's first bucket and I had an interesting. Have you have you rented? Yeah Yeah I just read the ballet section the other day actually so I just wanted to hear your. He talks a little bit about You know when you're conducting opera you have to look much higher to get to their faces and their their breasts Their mouth and everything to get your visual information there. But it's elise you're in ballet as Are you are you spending a lot of time looking up at the stage I would? It depends you know what I mean like. There are certain points where you're literally glued to the dancer because every little step every millisecond. You know there's this thing called breezes for men and women too but mainly men where they're jumping up with their feet sort of parallel to each other doing little flaps basically They wouldn't call Gestures the field and IT's incredibly difficult. And they tend to do a whole bunch of them in a row maybe down the diagonal across the entire stage and every little moment. They're getting more and more tired. And it's one of those instances where you're really trying to help make sure that the tempo even like you know a degree from one. Twenty eight coordinate equals one twenty to one. Twenty one would be death on as other times. What you're really looking at them every single moment their time so you don't at all sleeping beauty of notorious because it is one of the most balance of scores there are so many variations are Sony Entire Third Act has nothing to do with the story. The story ended at the Second Act in the third act is literally just celebration potatoes dancing and you know. It's very different roommate. Juliet Romeo and Juliet is almost completely threw composed. And there's very few things you actually have to really just look up for you know. It's nice to if you if you want to really connects but oftentimes for coffee from Juliette. But there's not as many of them as a As before young. Juliette shut Updated it's all about the the whatever temple you guys decide on. You know it's it's it's music. It's much faster than the monthly dance. So it's it tends to be You just get to focus on the precision of the orchestra because that's obviously it's very very difficult for the orchestra articulation an unsolvable the strings but Yeah you know for me. I'm a bit short Asian stereotype that in short in so they have to raise the podium quite a bit because if you don't see the very if you can't see the very bottom of the stage all the way across it's actually very difficult because you know. Their shoes are only like four or five inches from the ground. Even if I'm point and so if you can't see when they're actually stepping when they are You know rising up onto their foot or would not. It's actually very very difficult. So some pits are easier than others some kids. I literally standing on the tips on my toes while the work is is underneath my feet in terms of how deep it is so it can be very challenging. I think sometimes well on your dancers for standing on your toes is not as maybe not the rest of us are you do you. Do you still dance at all now. I don't even play. I play piano. I it concentrates quite a bit. I think it's just amount of time. You know like You know I would love to play more but I think the amount of time to warm up in practice. It's very difficult to find nowadays and I'm not one of those Kansas that Lena like Argh rich that doesn't practice at all. What am I doing or three today? We're not just You know I actually had to practice a warm up and make sure I don't like injure myself and I think that in terms of the score study I mean it's also you know you want to you know feel like you're not just you know behind your scores of time so. I think I tend to devote more time to that now. So get physical activity on the yeah Does your does your score. Study differ depending on what type I mean. You Know Ballet Opera and symphonic choral whatever resume is kind of similar no. It's it's very different. Because Nowadays Valley companies can send you. The choreography in the is fantastic. Because you know you can get online with through the Mayo Youtube. Whatever you can get videos of their entire production so you a can idea most importantly you know what? The choreography is beforehand Be you can get an idea of what the ensemble is like who the players are like It's actually really great. You know I'm going to do in Nashville with National Ballet. I'm doing Juliet and it's great because you can hear you can see. The choreography was exactly the same as they did into thirteen. But you can hear the orchestra and you know it's National Symphony. I mean it's phenomenal. Symphony ends in other parts of it. You're just like wow that really well let's just GonNa miss that. But they did it. And you know it's really great because you can see.

"Music during the same at the same time how how well can they hear it or is it? Mostly you timing with the dancers. What they're doing. It's I feel like it's exactly like opera. There is a there is there is a ale and there's certain points where we certainly just dictated music. Certain points where they are technical difficulties in technically difficult issues that they have that sort of imply a certain tempo and there are some times where you actually have to negotiate in the moment and you know so balancing the great choreographer founder of New York City ballet you know he said the music was first and foremost and you just deal with it. In fact very much like opera singers are points where the dancers are supposed to look at the conducted. Sagrado when to start in how to start you know And so there are companies nowadays are exactly the opposite where they say you know this moment. For instance I did a sleeping beauty and it caused a lot of controversy because some of the ballet dancers think. This is the most discussing this way of indulgence. Ever but there's a point where this answer is very end is balancing on one foot and she is being courted by four different suitors and it's symbolic of her independence from four sitters is need anybody to help with the chain. Basically doing it by herself. It shows that her fiercest independence etc. You're supposed to do it for a couple of seconds accepted this Valerie and it did for about. I would say twenty full seconds all right but the muse one at the same time I mean like and it's very clear at the very end with punctuation for the end and so I can't do. The punctuation is at the end and suddenly have just like standing in silence while the entire audience. The student wanted to do and so. I basically had to stop orchestra smooch for Mata and the entire orchestras looking at me. Like what in the world is going on. And it wasn't musically the most it wasn't musically disturbing because there's basically speak tiffany role and to the big core those being held as big dominant court. You know so. It's not that bad. However you know I mean for the dancers. They felt that the dancer who is dancing stage was being indulgent. Was being ridiculous and being more of a circus act than Lasco ballet and so you know at that point for those decision points where you're like or hold the music back and literally habit folds or twenty seconds of actually really long time like are really really longtime and so you know there you know. The brass numbers actually dropped out. Because you can't do that to them. They're playing six three full very adagio bars before that slow tempo bars before that and so they they basically almost dropped out. And the tiffany players. Just sitting there on a For decent role for the entire time But he was one of those moments where you know like you know realize that live. Performance has a lot of Power but you know. I think that in reality there are a lot of times where you have companies that really feel like the answer is needed to dictate certain tempe and in rehearsal just like with opera singers. It's more about trying to figure that interplay in figuring out. Hey you know this is a temple that we have to take because there was one time where I was doing. Nutcracker and there was nothing in consequence inconsequential going happening on stage. It was Clara little girl. The Little Girl Clara not in the second act but the the little girl Clara going off and having a stage changed before the mice come out and you know every started nutcracker and she was taking too long and as a result the music by for Q to come on. And she didn't come on. And so the choreographer told me you know the music fast and I'm like you know actually just changed author and you. I mean like that's the obvious thing I mean it was. You know. There's one point where the balloons are holding this very very long notes before as the basis chillers Scotto. And you can't try that longer. They literally will run out of breath and just sounds ridiculous but you know we. It was one of the negotiating. You workout But you know like we did an opera all the time I mean. We have You know Bel Canto singers saying well you know what for these four bars? I'M GONNA DO Double Time Lucia Lucia if like two years ago and you know it's as tradition. He say. Hey these two bars we're going to double time and then we're going to make this slightly faster so my matic Tastic and then I'm going to hold it from out on this note and then adds sixteen bars here. We have a lot of manipulation with music For for for opera I think ballet dancers sometimes get too often stereotype that they're trying to destroy the music but I think that this conductors is to try to cigarette how to negotiate. Both worlds is to make them look and feel great but also let the music connects to the movement. And so that we loop. Don't lose phrasing That the music has overarching shape. But it also supports the dancers same time. Yeah knowing the flexibility of musicality an expression than office the opposite of the Metro. Yeah Oh you mean like. It'd be ludicrous to say to the to the opera singer he like okay. I'M GONNA look at this temple this temple and hopefully they'll be great. You know when you're doing upper you're obviously listening Entire time what if they're having a bad night and they can't sustain a high note as as much as they can. You know you'd have to have that sort of seems woody and I think that for dancers It's the same thing that you know especially because dance world you're not dealing with one. Cast and a secondary cast a cover cast you're dealing with maybe three completely even past of principals at all have their gaze of Or different strengths. I mean the stereotypes. That obvious stereotype. Is that the taller. Dancers are going to be slightly slower because they They're not as quick as the short answer right and so each performance might actually have slightly different corners or even just flat out. Tempe now the The sleeping beauty lady standing for for twenty seconds was that was that a in a performance. How would how did that happen? many yeah. There's there's a lot of ridiculous performance juries but that wasn't a performance And she the audience was amazing. I mean obviously every second. They were getting louder ladder. cheering and she got the meaning of Do Ben but also at the show too but She had you know it's not uncommon. For what the happen One of my mentors was talking. About how the same thing happened to him. And it's just one of those things that can happen in sleeping beauty depending on So then how does the relationship work with Those decisions are you working with individual dancers like coaching an opera. Or is it mostly with choreographer director? Like when you're deciding is this hit gonna come at the beginning or the end of the jump. Who who is that decision being made with the collaboration you know the the interesting thing about Ballet is that it is structured very much like operate. You know the General Quarter Ballet. The the company does SAMBA. Numbers is sort of like the chorus master in opera right and there is a chorus master. Valley Nestor that will help lead them The principal dancers is like you have principal coach as part of the opera. And then have the choreographer him or herself was like the director at end. Artistic Director of the company is very much involved. Sometimes too like if you're at an artistic If you're getting opera company where it has though stopping instead of email this and talk to the director negotiate and so oftentimes you get competing information quarter ballet. Ballet Master wants tempo certain way but the principal wants a certain way than you hear completely opposite things from the choreographer and the director. I mean we can have that in opera. But in in general it is negotiation that happens and The director are the two people that you generally have the last. Say at the way the they have the The power to change things quite a bit and so they're the ones that you negotiating with. You know there's this There's a fantastic geographer Cathy Marston. Who's making big waves right now? And she has a lot of work in England and she was doing speech with Episode Ballet Blind which is a fantastic work but she said in this one scene. It doesn't make a difference what the tempo is. I need for the scene to show the tragedy of the situation here. And so whatever you want to do with music to bring out that It will the dance is not going to be time to it. They can do day but I also tell them. The dancers at their job is to you know the certain tragedy and resignation. And so you know. It's very interesting moment because for me. I hadn't heard that very often from Choreography for you know. And sometimes they say you know. It's actually too much on the music. It's it's actually feeling like it's a little circus like if everything is just like POW BOOM. You know exactly on the same note. I'm so those discussions are really great to have it whom I think a it makes us feel more connected to the to the repertoire. Anyway we know what the purpose of the scenes are artistic creators standpoint and also you know the way we approach worker. Stra can also have a lot of impact you know if they're doing developed a which is just an extension of the leg. If it's very quick you know you don't want the music to language and sort of Soft right you can do things to change their relation of that attack of note to accentuate what they're doing or to try to bring out some other emotion aspects.

"Scroll up to where I'm talking either. Everyone Jeremy De Cuevas here. Just welcome to another episode of podium time and this is actually our sixtieth episode of the show. Hooray as all you. Conductors can probably appreciate. We were so busy this summer that we totally missed celebrating both our fiftieth episode. Which was with Paul McShane and our two year anniversary which would have been August thirteenth? But now it's October so you can see how well that went but we are celebrating our sixth episode today. And we're already planning for our seventy fifth episode in just a couple of months so stay tuned how. We are celebrating. Our Sixtieth episode is that I'd like to ask everybody to go join our new facebook group. The podium time inner circle this is an open group for all of our listeners where we can ask questions share resources all that great stuff and keep the conversation going after each of our episodes. There's a link in the show notes on We have it linked on our facebook page as well and you can also go ahead and pas the podcast right now and join the joined the group so go ahead. I'll wait and welcome back so there's also going to be a special behind the scenes clip that we recorded at the end of this interview. That we're just GONNA post in that facebook group and nowhere else just a couple minutes of chatting with With our guest today after we closed and it features an embarrassing story of mine that we will that will share so head over there now. Speaking of embarrassing stories this episode opens up with not a story. But me very embarrassingly butchering my French pronunciation. And then my strumming Luke who were talking today correcting me in my pronunciation. Ming Luke is the principal conductor of the Nashville Ballet. Just starting his first year in that position and his people actually reached out to us and we were so glad that they did because this was a fantastic interview one of our favorites in a long time we really get into some of the Nitty Gritty of ballet conducting the vocabulary. How To work with With choreographers all that good stuff plus plenty more so if you're not interested in ballet conducting at all still listen to this episode because there's a lot of great stuff in there especially in his advice near the end of the episode so without further Ado. Please enjoy the sixtieth episode of podium time. And please enjoy me just destroying this pronunciation right here. Here we go stage Yar a such Leisure is as old term for a when cooks go to go to a restaurant and today basically asked to work there for free just to get experience under that chef and also I always thought that musicians should be able to do because You know like if you have residency in the olden times if you're with You know belong jai or something bent along time. They're basically trying to get you know. Soak up as much knowledge as possible. Like something that we don't do as much nowadays but Yeah I'm not sure what Jimmy put into that but talk about ballet about the different world The different vocabulary that they have Answer this idea that At least for me that ballet dancers are we're all in the same performance but the way we talk about in the way we experiences very different. And so just like you conducted chorus different than orchestra. You know the way you work with. Ballet Dancers is very much Just a different way of operating by still started familiar to what we do. Yeah Yeah Yeah and I think it's just a world that most of us most of us haven't ever touched. I mean I've never. I've done a little bit of opera but definitely no ballet. Yeah there's a lot of fun especially when you're trying to translate what they're saying. So so what is some of that with some of that different vocabulary? Maybe we should. Maybe we should start there here. I mean you know. One of the basic things is the way that they experienced. Tempo is actually very different. We spend a long time from the very beginning. Pat metronome with on this idea of steady tempo and especially as conductors figuring out. Where the Roberto is. You know whether something is complete Take time where we're going to develop our phrasing with dynamic or tempo and for them it's much more of a feeling and so they can feel rushed in very many different ways. They can feel rushed because a temple is wrong can feel rushed because he didn't get to the place in time and the temple actually might be great. You just need to give him a little space. But even the vocabulary is very different. You know for instance If they ask for something very steady or they want you to keep the tempo for us that means exactly the same thing and it means it for them. It doesn't mean that it means to exactly opposite things for a steady. It actually means that the temple is actually fast and they wanted to be slower if they want you to keep the tempo they're saying that it feels like it's dragging needs to be actually quite quicker Quite a bit quicker and so you know just the way they use. The words is very much different because if you if they say something like you know the temple just feels to fast. I'm behind for everything. It could be for very many different reasons could be like I mentioned that. It's the tempo that's actually too fast for them to execute the moves or it might be that they didn't actually get to the quarter in time and you need to breath there but the temple would have been fine if they just got into the corner fares so they can start the first When definitely the opposite so steady means lower slower? Keep it Timothy. I'm already You know and no one of my first experiences was was really funny because it was connecting. Giselle for the first time and just a has his famous putted. Oh the very beginning when they meet each other or they each other and they give these kisses and at that moment the dancer said hey you know it feels like it's getting faster at this one phrase. Can you just keep it you know? Keep the temple exactly the same and the pianist or her in the rehearsal looked at each other like okay. I mean maybe we're speeding up where we proceeded but we'll keep it very steady. You know Qatar. Keep it very you know even Because if they said steady place lower and then the next couple the next Principal couple they came in so the same exact thing independence and I looked at each other and said you know the last couple of that and we were working really hard to make sure the temperature change. And so when I went to one of my mentors and I mentioned the stories like Oh actually you know traditionally we slowed down just like one. Click on the metronome right there because they have this beautiful gesture that they wanna feel like they have enough time for. And so it's it's you know. I think a lot of conductors can understand when start working with a click track for the first time like if they're doing film accompanying and all the sudden you realize the rigidity of steady tempo is actually quite difficult especially when you're trying to conduct an leading ninety musicians to be able to feel the exact same time and I think for ballet dancers is very much like that. They they have this. We have competing things that they're working against. One is to be in time but the second one obviously is to be able to execute their gestures and sometimes they take a little bit more time for preparation. They don't realize that It's taking up more time or needs more time. And so they're only feeling is that they feel washed and a lot of my job Working between allie dancers musicians. It's a try to be able to translate exactly what that means whether it is that they are It attempted that's really too quick for the execution or Heaven Forbid which is much much much worse attempt to slow because of his too slow. Have to a exert more energy to get through which is for them. And then of course whether it's the place and the right time or it's just the ideally or do sometimes whereas difference between with the piano sounds like what the orchestra sound psych and how they phrased slightly differently and the temples perfectly. Fine just feels different. So that is really. Just you know like you're talking to any ensemble Of course you don't give the same gestures of course as it gives to the brass players right. You know what I mean like the sort of tight V. sometimes we do for brass to show. Power is absolute death for chorus because it sort of symbolizes tightness and they're lowering salt seize up and I think we're ballet dancers is very much the same way just the way you work with them. We're all in the same performance like if they were singers opera but on stage. But it's just about trying to figure out exactly what their needs to make them feel comfortable or to help you know have to next to the music that makes sense that a slower tempos more difficult. Because I mean you can move slower. And that's literally harder but you can't slow down gravity if you're if you're leaping you can't you can't follow the earth a little bit slower. Yes I can understand that creating a lot of problems and you you do these little things to to help performance a little bit you know for instance when you if somebody's jumping as a huge leap. There's some punctuation on the music. There's a difference between China time when they're at the top of the jump or at the bottom of jump or at the very beginning of the job and oftentimes at the very beginning of the job which makes them feel like. They're in the air longer. If you do it when they land it makes them feel like very heavy. Because you're actually accentuating the fact that they're landing on the ground but when you try to time when they're the top of the job You know if you're the slightest bit off either way it really makes jump feel like it's it's just for church or Unimpressive But you know for belly dancers also And this is something that I think. He's very much difficult time dealing with is that they're trying to time it with their muscle impulse and so when they're executing Like let's say appear whether or not there's a certain point where they really snap around for the speed of the spin and they're trying to time it with that and so just like musicians might naturally try to say while they're at the top of the jump that looks fantastic. It looks good. Time with the music perfectly for dancers are actually trying to time in somewhere so different to end timing. The top jump actually makes them look a little bit more heavy for small but also it doesn't help them connect to the music as much. Do they have to kind of sounds like well? I think if the music's going to the dancers kind of trying to play off the.

"Type one diabetes and little kids is prolific bedding. Because the only way they can go to all the sugar that's building up in their bloodstream. But I didn't know that despite my very fancy spenc- degrees. So I was there searching and in a funny way, I'm truly not calling Google out about this. But in a funny way, Google knew or could have known, I know this for certain because I work in this space if they'd really wanted to they could have sent me a message. It says, you know, Dr Ming, you might wanna check in with your pediatrician now, you can understand why they do it because they could be wrong, and what would the liability of being wrong be and what trust to they have. But what's interesting is so many companies have punted on that. And simply said, you know, what we're not engaged with us at all. And you have to understand that is a moral decision as well. That is the decision to allow some number of kids to die from Kito acidosis from severe blood acidity accumulating from essentially them digest. Getting their own body, and you could go through and look at suicide rates and all these things on social media. These companies actually care they are genuinely running research projects internally I know because I collaborated on some of them, but turning that into public policy turning that into a genuine opportunity for them to do what they believe is right as individuals and get around their fears as a corporation is truly challenging Eric Schmidt. When he was at Google famously said that their job is to right up to the edge of creepy without overstepping. It had Google sent you that message saying you to check your son out. Would you have felt that overstep the edge of creepy nece?

"Pointless. And yet go read any of the hundreds of policy papers put out about the future of work and tell me whether you find the word person in it it taught a talk about workers and skills about reskilling and programming, but we're off endlessly fungible widgets. And because the economy will need creativity will just magically self actualize become. Creative. And you don't have to study human beings for very long to realize what a foolish notion that is. So I kind of said on neither side. I don't think as have to destroy all the jobs and concentrate all the power in the hands of very few, nor do I think the people will just magically freed of having to pay their rent free of the burdens of the industrial economy will all become artists and doctors if you could point out to me the line trailing outside of every library all over the world. I might believe you, but we don't pay artists anything anyways. If you wanted to be when you get to be one right now, and very few people are that you heard earlier today. I programs is being expert decision-makers expertise depends on inputs, which make them experts. Is there a worry that the inputs into these expert systems are really they should be? Yeah. So there's two takes on this. And. I think the consensus view in the machine learning community and one that is really entered the public mind is we need to understand the data that we feed into this thing, you know, ten years ago. I got a call from the Wall Street Journal, and they said Dr Ming Google just labeled a couple as guerrillas a black couple is a racist. And my reflexive response was it's the same as the rest of us depends on how you raise it. And it is true. In that context that most AI systems are overwhelmingly trained on the job resumes. The images the criminal history of certain classes of people, and they become deeply biased as a result. Here's where I break with the consensus. They've described a genuine problem. My response is that if our solution to that is we need to show. Our a is a fan. Antecedent world to make them believe everything is wonderful and harmonious and black people are just as good as white people. Then our models have failed because they should have been able to figure that out from the real world because it's already true. So the problem is and forgive me, if this gets a little wonky, the vast majority of relationships to be found in data or correlations not causes. In fact, the overwhelming number in any real world data set are just a bunch of spurious correlations that have nothing to do with. What actually makes it great employees or whether someone committed a crime or not and yet modern official intelligence is dominated by those correlations. And so we're frequently misled the most famous recent case was the system Amazon tried to build for it self to improve hiring that turned out to be unfixable sexist. If you even had the word women's on. Your resume. It would downgrade the resume, and as it turns out I had the chance years ago to tell them that that approach wouldn't work, and they didn't take my advice. So we need not only more responsible publication of AI understanding that real world date is messy, and if we're looking at correlations it's going to mislead us..
